Today’s Dublin Factoid: Ireland’s brightest sparks are invited to compete for the 2015 ESB Spark of Genius Award at this year’s Web Summit with a prize fund of over €25,000. The ESB Spark of Genius Award focuses on high potential technology start-ups and is open to any Irish startup which has been in operation for less than 3 years and has received under €1 million in funding to date. Entrants will be judged on the uniqueness of their idea, their level of development thus far, and their potential for future growth. Past winners of the ESB Spark of Genius Award include Love & Robots, Viddyad, SmartThings (recently acquired by Samsung for a reported $200m) and Datahug. Find out more (and sign up) HERE.
